Krauthammer Is Missing the Iceberg

Charles Krauthammer seems to think he is aboard the Titanic, where the ladies are excused, while the men discuss politics and smoke cigars:
"Let's see if we can have a reasoned discussion about end-of-life counseling. We might start by asking Sarah Palin to leave the room. I've got nothing against her. She's a remarkable political talent. But there are no "death panels" in the Democratic health-care bills, and to say that there are is to debase the debate."
Charles seems to be suffering from selective hearing syndrome , and has conflated end-of-life counseling with the inevitable rationing that would accompany government run health care. Two cases in two days might warrant a call to the CDC. Charles seems to have forgotten an important lesson from those who failed to heed the warning, "Iceberg, Right Ahead." It didn't end well Charles.
